While many of our customers achieve exactly the look they want with wide plank white oak flooring, we often have the pleasure of creating something even more rare, distinctive, and unforgettable: wide plank black walnut flooring.
Walnut flooring is made from American Black Walnut, a species which produces a prized wood with a naturally dark color, exceptional durability, and unmistakable straight grain. Historically, this distinctive wood has been used for objects of special value or artistic importance, like gun stocks and fine furniture. For customers who want the warmth of a naturally dark wood floor, there are several reasons to consider black walnut flooring:
Black Walnut is a Species Unlike Any Other
When you first set foot in a home with a wide plank Black Walnut floor, you immediately know that something is different. Black Walnut sets a foundation for a unique interior that showcases your particular tastes.
Walnut’s Beauty Lasts
This species is renowned for its strength, hardness, and durability. Unlike many unique choices which have a practical downside, black walnut offers both style and function.
It’s Warm and Inviting
Few other kinds of wood are as dramatic, yet as warm and inviting as Walnut. The deep brown heartwood is dark without being overwhelming, and the lighter sapwood provides just enough texture. At the end of the day, it’s a floor that says, “welcome home.”
